Confidex® guarantee

Offers the most comprehensive guarantee for pre-finished steel products in Europe and provides peace of mind for up to 40 years for industrial and commercial buildings.

Unlike other guarantees Confidex® covers factory cut edges for the entirety of the guarantee period and does not require any inspections or maintenance to validate the guarantee, except when Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and Colorcoat Prisma® is used on a roof and wall that has a Photovoltaic (PV) installation*.

The Confidex® Guarantee is clear and simple and unlike many other guarantees, offers full remedial action in the unlikely event of coating failure.
